Making a Difference. The Problems We Are Solving 40% of all offenders are alcohol involved when arrested 1.4 million DUI arrests every year 80% of domestic violence is alcohol related Jails and prisons are overcrowded The system is overwhelmed Recidivism rates remain unchanged The hardcore drunk driver (HCDD) persists Traditional methods have not produced better results
Making a Difference. Predominately focusing on: Often drive with a high BAC of Incur repeated DUI arrests Are highly resistant to behavioral change Are 385x more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than non-drinking drivers Sources: Century Council, National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHSTA), Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) The Hardcore Drunk Driver... Every state’s problem
Making a Difference. SCRAMx Solution PRODUCT Court-validated, industry-proven technology for 24/7 accountability PROGRAMS Contingency management models that can be adapted to a specific application SERVICES Professional management of turnkey, custom CAM programs by AMS’ channel organization 225,000 monitored in last six years Tailored to federal, state, and local requirements Serving more than 1,800+ jurisdictions nationwide 220,000+ offenders monitored since 2003 Integrating components to deliver the SCRAMx advantage
Making a Difference. SCRAMx Product SCRAMx System Components SCRAMx Bracelet monitors for alcohol and curfew compliance Base Station receives data from bracelet Data transmits – via wireless or analog – from base station to SCRAM NET SCRAM NET is the central database and repository for analysis and reporting Innovation:
Making a Difference. Why CAM? Breathalyzer test 7 AM Offender starts drinking 6 PM Breathalyzer test 5 PM Offender peaks Offender is sober 6 AM Breathalyzer test 7 AM Unless you're lucky, random tests miss most drinking events. Offenders can drink around random breathalyzer tests. Alcohol metabolizes quickly: Random vs. Continuous Testing
Making a Difference. SCRAMx Programs Adaptability: Prevalent throughout federal, state, and local levels of the criminal justice system A djustable contingency management enables supervision authorities to ratchet sanctions or incentives up or down based on behavior SCRAMx Applications Parole / Re-entry Treatment / Recovery Probation Sheriffs’ Departments Specialty Courts Pretrial

Making a Difference. Offender numbers speak for themselves 88% felt SCRAM helped them stop drinking 87% would recommend SCRAM to others with alcohol problems 80% paid their court fees and fines while on SCRAM $13.35 was the average daily dollar amount spent on alcohol before SCRAMx SCRAMx Participant Exit Survey Out of 10,000 offenders:
